It was revealed Spandau Ballet have found a new frontman.
As word got out that Ross William Wild, 30, will replace Tony, 57, as the new lead singer of the ‘80s hit band, he wrote on Twitter: “At last it's been announced that Ross William Wild is my replacement ... I've known for ages (can't really keep a secret in this business!), but didn't want to spoil the news. So good luck Ross!
He added: "Best wishes, Tone X”
Tone also reached out to his fans on social media by thanking them - and reminding them that his new solo album, Talking To The Moon, will be out in a week: “I can't wait to share new music with you all. Let know which shows you're coming to. Thanks for the continued support.”
Tony quit the band last year and cited “circumstances beyond my control” for his departure, which Steve Norman later called “bulls***”.
The remaining members of the group - including brothers Gary and Martin Kemp - have announced that a new album called The Next Line with the all-new line up will be released on June 6, and Ross will be making his debut appearance in a show at London’s Subterania club on the same day.
Ross previously played Elvis Presley in the West End show, Million Dollar Quartet, which he starred in with Gary.
The band had a No1 hit with True in 1983, then split in 1990 when Tony along with Steve and drummer John Keeble unsuccessfully tried to sue songwriter Gary Kemp over royalties.
The group reunited in 2009 and in 2014 for a tour the next year, before Tony dropped the bombshell that it was all over for the ‘80s crooners once again in 2017.
Happy birthday to Tony who celebrates his birthday on June 2nd.
